Summertime is a time of sun, sand, and fun… and engagements too! I mean… what better time to get engaged than when you’re making summer memories?! We’ve partnered with Macy’s to showcase their Star Signature Diamond and share a few of our favorite summer proposal ideas. These ideas are all meant to be fairly easy, and don’t require too much preparation or planning. Simply take part in one of these quintessential summertime activities, add a ring, and voila, you have a proposal to remember!
Step 1: Get your ring!
Macy’s Star Signature Diamond rings are all absolutely stunning. They have a wide range of options available, and the best part? All of the diamonds are available in round and fancy shapes, and are guaranteed to be natural and untreated. Each is cut with 73 facets for the perfect amount of sparkle. From classically simple, to elegantly chic, there is absolutely going to be a style perfect for your future spouse.
Step 2: Choose a summer activity!
We’ve gathered a few of our favorite summer activities that would be perfect to double as a proposal event too! The key to all of these summertime proposal ideas is that the activities themselves are pretty typical, so the element of surprise will most definitely be in there!
Poolside Popsicles & Prosecco
Spending a day by the pool? Treat yourselves to some popsicles and Prosecco (or champagne)! If you’re proposing, be sure you’re the one to prepare the cool poolside treats, and simply add the ring to your sweetheart’s popsicle stick!
Pool Float Day
Another poolside idea, perfect if your bride-or-groom-to-be loves pool floats. Grab an engagement ring pool float to add to your collection, and have it waiting in the pool! And then of course be ready with your actual ring to get down on one knee!
Ice Cream Truck Fun
This one will take a little planning ahead, but not too much! If you have an ice cream truck that makes the rounds in your area, you could just find it a few minutes before getting to you, and see if they would agree to handing your love a ring along with their ice cream selection. Okay, and yes, you would also definitely have to trust them. Alternatively, you could slip the ice cream man (or woman) the ring when you hand he or she some cash to pay for the ice cream.
Shell Collecting On The Beach
There’s nothing more romantic than a sunset walk on the beach… or heck a walk on the beach at just about any time of day will do! Go on a shell collecting expedition with your soon-to-be, and just bend down to pick up a shell, and happy to also find a ring… and a proposal too.
Drive-in Movie Night
Another popular summertime activity- going to the drive-in! Of course this can only happen if your city has one still operating. This proposal can be as simple or as elaborate as you want! If you want to go big, you could inquire about purchasing an ad that would display prior to the movie- just make sure you arrive early! Alternatively, you could just pop the question prior to the movie starting!
Now to complete the first step- go find that #MacysLove ring! We definitely recommend taking a look at the Macy’s Star Signature Diamond Collection!
And also, keep in mind that all of these summer proposal ideas are meant to be E-A-S-Y. The important thing is to be doing something that you two enjoy so you will then remember that particular activity fondly for the rest of your life together.
